Years ago, when Billy Crystal was hosting the Oscars all the time, he would kick off the show with a short film incorporating himself in films nominated for Oscars and follow it up with a best song medley. The times may have changed, but Crystal's routine hasn't. Like clockwork, he did the montage followed by the medley. Though he did dance into controversial territory with his blackface appearance as Sammy Davis Jr.
